On Wednesday 21st February, the Leinster Schools Cross Country was held at Santry, Dublin. We had two teams competing in the under 14s and the under 17s events.
The Minor race (u14) was run over 2000 metres. We finished in second place with a combined team total of 108 points. Members of this team are Eoin Lawlor, Killian Burke, Charlie Murphy, Brian Gilroy, Cian Boran, Rian Redfern, Carl Lennox, Peter Casey, Eoin Gallagher and Jason Brady. Best of luck to the team who will be competing in the All-Ireland Schools Cross Country on Saturday March 10th in Waterford IT.
Our under 17 team finished in third place but unfortunately didn’t qualify for the All-Irelands as there were two teams in joint second so we were relegated to fourth much to everyone’s disappointment. Members of the under 17 team include Matthew Whelan, Josh Derham, Mikey Lawlor, Harry Whelan, Adam Farrell, Dara O Briain, Tom Mernagh and David Cronin.
